Christmas Tree Chipping

Are you getting ready to take down your Christmas tree, but don't know where to take it? The Keep Beaufort County Beautiful group now has six drop-off sites throughout the county for their Grinding of the Greens project. For the past eight years, the county has taken Christmas trees and turned them into mulch.

"One ten foot tree would take up ten feet of space at the landfill, so we're trying to save landfill space and we're trying to save disposal cost," said coordinator Veronica Miller.

You can drop off your tree at any of the six Low Country locations listed below through January 11. That's when they'll grind up the greens and the mulch will be available free of charge. 

1.   The Cinema on Lady's Island

2. Pleasant Point at Family Christmas Tree Farm

3.   In front of Naval Hospital on Ribaut Road

4.   Beaufort Plaza on 170 in Beaufort

5.   Simmonsville Road at the county drop-off center in Bluffton

6.   Coligny Plaza parking lot on Hilton Head Island
